Rahm And Zeke, Zeke And Rahm

John Batchelor at The Daily Beast tells how Obama’s bullying Chief of Staff Rahm Emmanuel is single-handedly reviving the fumbling, bumbling near moribund GOP. And so, thanks to Rahm Emmanuel, the Obama hope and change socialist revolution has come to a grinding, pitiful halt. For which we can only exclaim, Thank You Rahm Emmanuel! On the other hand, Rahm is not as cold as his brother Ezekiel, whose plans for Obamacare call for rationed health care to be allotted to the young, while allowing the elderly to die, on the grounds that scarce health care should not be wasted on those who will die in a few years anyway. Makes sense in a cold, Marxist sort of way, but thanks to brother Rahm, brother Zeke’s and President Obama’s dream of scarce, rationed, government run socialized medicine will never come to pass.



Rahm started young, as with most guys

By pulling wings off little flies

It made him feel real good and strong and tough

He graduated then to girls

By pulling on their shiny curls

Until they screamed and cried out loud Enough!

In college he was quite the scream

The evil presence in the dream

Of everyone who came into his view

He organized a lefty crowd

And dared the rest to say out loud

That he and his were both a scurvy crew

He says that’s just Chicago’s way

And everyone just has to play

The game that is the only game in town

He plays it tough, he plays it cool

He knows the game’s a deadly duel

And winner gets acclaimed to great renown

In politics, the Rahm would smile

The gap is but a quarter mile

Between the guys like him and guys like us

And when he does his dirty stuff

But finds that someone’s called his bluff

He smiles and says it’s okay what’s the fuss

He has a brother name of Zeke

Who’s plans for us we’ve had a peek

Bro Zeke thinks healthcare’s for the young and strong

And if you’re getting up in years

And sickness brings its doleful tears

Zeke’s death panels will move you right along

So if it’s difference that you seek

Between the Rahm and brother Zeke

You only need to see what they propose

Rahm is looking after Rahm

While Zeke is looking for the calm

He gets by picking old folks to dispose

I say that Rahm is looking after Rahm

While Zeke is looking for the balm

That comes from putting old folks in repose



Paging Dr. Mengele

Ezekiel Emmanuel MD, Rahm Emmanuel’s brother, has co-authored an interesting article on health care in the Lancet, the British medical journal. Rahm Emmanuel of course is President Obama’s chief of staff, which explains why Zeke is now Obama’s “Special Advisor For Health Policy”, and is currently engaged in the task of turning our health care system upside down. In the article in the Lancet, Ezekiel Emmanuel and his co-authors lay out the various ways of deciding who gets treatment and who doesn’t. Part pf their recommendations for the rationed government health care is that the very young and the old get minimal health care, while the productive get taken care of. I think we’ve seen this one before, and it has always ended in someone in authority deciding who goes to the gas chamber and who does not. Another interesting item is called “Instrumental Value”, where again someone in authority decides that someone of instrumental value to society will get treated first. We’ve seen this one too. The Party bosses get their own hospitals and department stores. Of course, the largest problem in any national health care rationing system is who gets to decide who gets treated, who gets to live, and who gets to die. And we already know who the deciders will be. The deciders will be the politically connected, the liberal elites, the Rahm and Ezekiel Emmanuels of this world.         



Well now says Rahmie’s brother

We’ll fix this thing up right

And soon we’ll have another

Little bitty health care fight

We want to make things even

We want to make things fair

That’s why we shall be heavin’

Out that nasty old health care

We know right now we have the best

Health system in the world

But we progressives cannot rest

And so the gauntlet’s hurled

You’ve seen the charts you’ve seen the graphs

You know now what’s in store

The young and old get epitaphs

The rest of us will score

Of course we know that some will say

The rich will get the share

That rightfully belongs to they

Who qualify for care

And politics will surely play

A roll in who gets what

The well connected have their way

The rest of you get squat

But best of all we at the top

Already know what gives

We get to say whose life will stop

And get to say who lives
